If you're a fan of Shinji and Kaworu in Neon Genesis: Evangelion, and happen to be in the market for high-quality boxer shorts, you'll be happy to know about a new collaboration between the famous anime franchise and luxury Japanese underwear brand TOOT.

Evangelion X TOOT

In what looks like it may be the first of several announcements in this somewhat unusual collaboration, two boxer briefs have been announced, inspired by Shinji Ikari and Kaworu Nagisa, and based on TOOT's popular nano series:

EVANGELION 01SHINJI nano

The EVANGELION 01SHINJI nano has 01 printed on it, representing the Eva Unit-01 which Shinji pilots. The color scheme is inspired by his plug suit.

EVANGELION 06KAWORU nano

The EVANGELION 06KAWORU nano has 06 printed on it, representing the Evangelion Mark.06 which Kaworu pilots. The color scheme is inspired by his plug suit.

The material used is a combination of smooth nylon fabric and mesh fabric that absorbs moisture quickly and has a comfortable fit thanks to TOOT's uncompromising stitching and artisanal quality. Creating a sporty look, with a low-rise cut, these boxer shorts are sure to make an impact no matter what you're piloting.
